Of all the reality car restoration/customizing shows on TV, I enjoy Diesel Brothers the most. They are staged, but still funny. The build should be interesting.

That's pretty much what I'm doing to my Bronco axle wise. I don't have tv (satellite/cable) so I've never seen the show. Sounds pretty interesting though.

they did not build it. it looked like a good thing but they got hung up on doors.

Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

They don't "build" much of anything, most of the fabrication is done by other companies, then they assemble the major components. I wouldn't have an issue with it if the show didn't mascarade as a one stop shop that does it all themselves.

My point being, even if they run into problems, im sure they will pop up in another episode or two and say "Hey, remember that Bronco we tried to make and ran into problems? Well I've had one of the guys working on it and TaDa here it is"

Well, that's what they get for trying to make a Bronco without a removable top.

Let me make it make sense for you. Bronco's have removable tops, it is a fact. When you want to steal a design and call it a Bronco, and plan on entering it in Sema, it should be true to it's roots? Karma shut the build down.
